New Horizons College is one of the four schools, established by the Islamic Education Trust, Minna, Niger State of Nigeria. It was established on September 10th, 1995, and initially took only day boys.
Today the school has both male and female students, each gender having its own section of classrooms, as well as separate boarding facilities, to cater for students from all over Nigeria, who had for long wished to benefit from the type of education offered by New Horizons College.
The school is a product of the vision of the Trustees who aimed to provide Muslim children and parents, with the right mix of Islamic and Western education to highest international standards.
The Mission Statement of the school is to foster Academic Excellence, Broad General and Islamic Knowledge, and High Islamic Moral Ethos. Alhamdulillah, we are on all fronts living up to the Mission Statement. Testimonies of this are the National Competitions the school performed well in within the past year: Bronze Medal in the Biology Olympiad 2006; Gold Medal at the International Young Physicists Tournament (IYPT 2006); Winners of Digi-Test ICT Cup for senior secondary schools 2006, Winners of ICT Digi-Test ICT Cup for Junior Secondary Schools; and Silver Medal at IYPT 2007. Our yearly WAEC results and performance in JAMB Exams reflect our commitment to high academic standards which have translated into large numbers of our students’ yearly gaining admission into various high institutions within the shores of Nigeria and beyond.
